‘Above the Fold’ refers to the portion or sections of a web page that are visible to a visitor without scrolling. The portion or sections visible will vary in size due to different screen resolutions, choice of browser (combined with possible toolbars, etc.), zoom level and text size settings for the browser being used, and may even be ‘affected’ by the operating system installed on the computer.
The remaining portion or sections of a web page that require scrolling to view are referred to as ‘Below the Fold’.
